Farm Environmental Plans & Nutrient Budgets
Ashburton Lyndhurst Irrigation Limited (ALIL), Mayfield Hinds Irrigation Limited (MHIL) and Valetta Irrigation Limited (VIL) work together under the terms of the resource consent held by Rangitata Diversion Race Management Limited (RDRML) to use surface water (CRC121664). This consent allows for an Audited Self-Management (ASM) approach within certain limits and with specific reporting requirements. Writing, implementing and auditing Farm Environmental Plans (FEP's) is part of our ASM approach and enables RDRML to demonstrate the irrigators' level of environmental performance, and compliance with the resource consent conditions. The completion of a Nutrient Budget is also a key requirement.
